Residents of Prince Edward Island are reminded periodically of their good fortune in living on this peaceful little island. During this last week, while fear, apprehension, disaster and conflict fill the news, island news offered such a reminder. A story about a cow was a local headline, though not the type of cow we see throughout the countryside.
This cow is usually at the airport but now Bessie is gone for regular maintenance.
Bessie is a bovine statue which represents a brand of ice cream made here. She stands in the arrival area of the airport and children enjoy seeing her every time they visit there.
Sadly, she will be missing for a week, having some body work done at a local auto body repair shop.
Life on Prince Edward Island is peaceful, slow paced and a-moo-zing.
